Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) refers to a transport vehicle equipped with an automatic guiding device such as electromagnetic or optical, capable of traveling along a prescribed guiding path, with safety protection and various transfer functions, in industrial applications. A battery that does not require a driver and a rechargeable battery is the source of power. Generally, the travel route and behavior can be controlled by a computer, or the electromagnetic track can be used to set up a travel route, the electromagnetic track is adhered to the floor, and the unmanned transport vehicle moves and moves according to the information brought by the electromagnetic track.

1. Warehousing industry

The warehousing industry is the earliest application of AGV. In 1954, the world's first AGV was put into operation in the warehouse of Mercury Motor Freight Company in South Carolina, USA, to realize the automatic handling of inbound and outbound goods.

2. manufacturing

AGV is a leader in the manufacturing line of production, efficient, accurate and flexible material handling tasks. And a flexible logistics handling system can be composed of multiple AGVs. The transportation route can be adjusted in time with the adjustment of the production process, so that more than ten products can be manufactured on one production line, which greatly improves the flexibility of production and the competitiveness of the enterprise.

In recent years, as the basic handling tool of CIMS, the application of AGV has penetrated into many industries such as machining, home appliance production, microelectronics manufacturing, cigarettes, etc. The field of production and processing has become the most widely used field of AGV.

3. Post office, library, port terminal and airport

In post offices, libraries, terminals, airports, etc., the transportation of items has the characteristics of large changes in workload, strong dynamics, frequent adjustment of work processes, and single handling operation. AGV's parallel operation, automation, intelligence and flexibility. The characteristics of the product can well meet the handling requirements of the above-mentioned occasions. Sweden started the postal work in 1983 at the Post Office in Greater Stockholm, Japan in Japan in 1988 at the Tama Post Office, and in 1990 at the Shanghai Post Hub in Shanghai.

4. Tobacco, medicine, food, chemical

In the tobacco, pharmaceutical, food, chemical and other industries where the handling operations are clean, safe, and free of emissions, the application of AGV has also received attention. Many cigarette companies in China have applied laser-guided AGV to carry pallet trucks.
